The re­port con­tain­ing the list of new mem­bers was tabled by ma­jor­ity leader Mar­lin Olero on Tues­day and adopted.

Dur­ing the de­bate, MCAs from the ma­jor­ity and mi­nor­ity par­ties dif­fered over the names on the list. The mi­nor­ity party, led by whip Ed­win Anayo, ac­cus­ing the ma­jor­ity of tam­per­ing with the list.

“One name has been deleted from the list pro­posed by the mi­nor­ity and we will not al­low this,” he said. Adul warned mem­bers against dis­cussing party mat­ters in the as­sem­bly and urged them to stick to the re­port.
